Yeah, my wife really dislikes the intense, EXTENDED screamfests at the end of some LLights...however, I will say that a properly placed yell, such as on the studio version of StSt, or JBGoode (like on the LastFillmore flick I was talking about yesterday) by Bob is spot on it seems to me...I was always troubled by my own inability to get out a good yell without having to think about it (seems the last thing you should be doing during a good time at a concert, right? but if I didn't, I would "break up" mid yell, and no one wanted to hear that...to sustain a consistent "tone" I really had to work at it, and if I just let it rip, half the time it would break to a high pitched or even inaudible squeak, interupting nearby bats and such flitting overhead...of course, I have NO singing ability whatsoever, so what do I know...but, I always figured I could talk my way thru a song too, though it would sound like Rod Serling).

Yeah - I'm the same. Maybe you sound like Rex Harrison. I remember hearing this once 'Them's that can't become critics. Sounds like a lot of us. :)

Doc Doolittle! Well, of course, I do little, and I like animals, but the tall hat ain't my style...I have immitated Rod though to the amusement of many friends over the years...he doesn't get much recognition nowadays though, so my audience is shrinking.

You just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.
